INTRO TO SPLITBOARDING

 

Do you want to go on an exciting backcountry adventure, experiencing snowboarding in a totally new way? As well as ride some incredible untracked powder descents that will keep you daydreaming for many weeks to come.

Splitboarding is all about strapping in, trekking out and riding untracked terrain that just isn’t possible to get to by hiking. Exclusive to the MINT December Snowboard Camps 2019, join us on this Splitboard Intro day to find out what all the fuss is about!

The day is run by our IFMGA Mountain Guide, David Gladwin, who will introduce you to the essentials of splitboard touring and take you on an incredible backcountry adventure in our local mountains. There will also be a focus on teaching you mountain safety skills so you know how to assess risks and ride safely in the backcountry.
